• Results consistent with management’s expectations
  • Preliminary results released in connection with the financing for its previously announced acquisition of EMC Corporation
  • Company will issue final Fiscal 2017 Q1 results confidentially to qualified debt investors June 2, 2016

Denali Holding Inc. (“Denali” or “the Company”) today released selected preliminary financial results for the three months ended April 29, 2016 in connection with the financing for its previously announced acquisition of EMC Corporation. Preliminary non-GAAP net revenue and non-GAAP operating income of Denali were approximately $13.3 billion and $0.6 billion, respectively, for the three months ended April 29, 2016. Preliminary Adjusted EBITDA was approximately $0.7 billion for the three months ended April 29, 2016.

On March 27, 2016, Denali entered into a definitive agreement with NTT Data International L.L.C. to sell substantially all of its Dell Services business for cash consideration of approximately $3.1 billion. Dell Services includes process outsourcing, application management and infrastructure services. The results of Dell Services are included in the preliminary financial results, and will be presented as discontinued operations in the Fiscal 2017 Q1 financial statements. Denali anticipates the Dell Services transaction will close in the third quarter of Fiscal 2017.

The selected preliminary financial results of Denali for the three months ended April 29, 2016 and the historical data for the three months ended May 1, 2015 presented here are inclusive of the results of Dell Services. The preliminary results of Dell Services for the three months ended April 29, 2016 are expected to be materially consistent with previously disclosed results for this business. The consolidated preliminary financial results exclude adjustments related to amortization of intangibles, purchase accounting adjustments and other corporate expenses. Including these items, Denali’s preliminary results for net revenue and operating loss were approximately $13.2 billion and $0.1 billion, respectively.

The company believes that the reasons for the changes in its preliminary non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended April 29, 2016, as compared to the three months ended May 1, 2015, are substantially consistent with the trends disclosed in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of Denali” included in Denali’s Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed with the SEC on May 11, 2016. (the “S-4 Registration Statement”).

The table below provides a reconciliation of preliminary net revenue to non-GAAP net revenue, preliminary operating loss to non-GAAP operating income and preliminary operating loss to Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended April 29, 2016. For more information on the adjustments below, see the section entitled “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of Denali – Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in the S-4 Registration Statement.

The preliminary financial data presented herein is based upon the company’s estimates and currently available information, and is subject to revision as a result of, among other things, the completion of financial closing procedures, the completion of financial statements for such period, the preparation of the discontinued operations presentation of Dell Services, and the completion of other operational procedures (all of which have not yet been completed).

Denali expects to release its Fiscal 2017 Q1 financial results to current holders of debt securities of Denali or Dell Inc.
